Music for Money's Sake

Ashlee Simpson stopped by the fittingly atrocious TRL on Thursday to discuss her upcoming record. The blond shell described the album’s sound as “cheeky, quirky and sweet,” saying, “I wanted to do music with beats…I kind of laugh at things a lot, so you???ll hear that on the record.”

Music with beats is alright, we guess. But we don’t want to hear you “laugh at things a lot,” we want to hear you sing good songs over those beats. Is that too much to ask from a musician nowadays?

somebody should just tell the simpson sisters that they have no future in music or major movies, these two are better suited for porno or lifetime (a.k.a. most depressing channel on tv)movies.

I’d listen to the record if I knew why she was laughing a lot…like was Pete making an ugly(er) face or did someone fart, or what.

I have this vision of just like, a “What Is Love” beat, with someone going “haw! haw! haw!” over top of it. And that would still be the best album the Simpsons have ever produced.

I’ve heard her song outta my head. very 80s with a good beat. It’s a catchy good song. That’s all i care. I’m not hung up on her celebrity. Good music is good music. No hatin here.

if you’re going to insinuate it…you might as well spell it out. It’s like saying “biatches” and pretending you don’t REALLY mean bitches.

Will her old nose be making an appearance on this album? Please tell me she will be doing that weird jig dance in the video!

she laughs on the album?
what a Janet RIP OFF. She started that in 1986.

Give it up Ashlee, be happy you are pretty now, and stop torturing us with your “music”

These poor girls. All they want to do is please everyone. They really should get into porn, I think it’s a good fit for their personal attributes (looks) and wouldn’t rely on too many of their weaknesses (such as acting, singing, or constructing complete sentences, or knowing the difference between tuna and chicken).

Nothing would please me more than seeing either or both of these two bimbos desperately working their orifices in ways that don’t involve words and music.

That’s a lot of layers you have goin on there, Ashley. It must be some kind of metaphor for her layering of singing, beats, and, laughter.

I think Ashlee’s new song is good… GO ASH!

No. 14 Shit#1 says:

As Michael K said - just go listen to some Gwen Stephani. If anything on the track doesn’t suck, it is some of the music - something I am sure she had little to do with.

Can we just put a moratorium on songs that are all, “my life is so hard, people talk about me, I am persecuted.” (Like that one Lilo song too). I mean, you wish! That song begins and ends with Michael Jackson. ::addresses all twats who think they are famous and a musician:: Until you have that level of scrutiny, shut up. I wouldn’t recognize you walking down the street. Most people wouldn’t.

I’m looking for a word that means: going to far and trying too hard only to come across as being a total fake-ass poser…any ideas?

I’m impressed - little Ashlee Simpson has made a rather Freudian video! Love love love the new song.

Psycstar, I am going to choose to believe that you are either joking or you work for one of those undercover marketing type groups that goes on the internet and tries to get hype started around a product because this song is shite.
